AECOM, Cavnue Announce Partnership to Deliver Connected and Automated Vehicle Corridor in Michigan
“Core to AECOM's ESG strategy, Sustainable Legacies, is delivering solutions that will improve social outcomes and reduce carbon impacts on the planet. This partnership will advance transportation in a way that's sustainable, smarter, and safer for generations to come in Michigan,” said Jennifer Aument, AECOM's global Transportation Chief Executive. “We believe in Cavnue's vision to unlock the potential in connected and automated travel, and we're thrilled to work together to create this future for the automated transportation industry and the communities that will benefit from it.”
In Michigan, Cavnue is integrating a first-of-its-kind roadway infrastructure stack with a hardware and software product to simplify the operating environment for all vehicles and to provide more information to vehicles about the road ahead, both of which unlock the benefits of in-vehicle technology. Cavnue, AECOM, and the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) are also working closely to utilize this system to provide insights back to those that operate and manage roadways.
“Smart cars need smart roads. Cavnue's mission is to simplify and enhance the driving environment to unlock the full potential of all autonomous vehicles. We were drawn to AECOM's expertise in innovative and groundbreaking projects, as well as their leadership in transportation and the automated vehicles sector,” said Tyler Duvall, Cavnue's Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We're excited to begin work in Michigan together and develop the solutions that will be the blueprint for the next generation of roadways.”
